All-Aspar podium in Turkey

The Master MVA Aspar Team took all three podium places at the 125cc Grand Prix of Turkey at Istanbul Park. Hector Faubel headed the charge with a superb dive past his team-mate Alvaro Bautista in the closing stages to take his first win of the season.

Bautista had led for most of the race, occasionally exchanging positions with Mika Kallio before the Finn's KTM broke down on lap 16.

Sergio Gadea completed the Spanish podium, ahead of Simone Corsi, Joan Olive and Gabor Talmacsi. There were also points for Lukas Pesek, Lorenzo Zanetti, Toyoshi Koyama and Angel Rodriguez.

Mattia Pasini crashed out on lap 2, rejoining the race but with little impact. British youngster Bradley Smith suffered a late crash without serious consequences.

A podium comprising solely of Spaniards was last seen in the final 80cc race in Brno back in 1989. The riders on that ocassion were Herri Torrentegui, Manuel Herreros and.....Jorge Martinez Aspar himself.
